Old Town Classic Leon Watson Adobe: 711 16th St NW

Quintessential Leon Watson Adobe home on a lush, tree-lined Old Town lane. Built of earth & timber, the classic Spanish Pueblo Revival home--at 711 16th St NW--has all the Watson artistry: thick-cut viga beams supporting T&G wood ceilings, dramatic lintel beams, Kiva fireplaces, stained concrete & tile floors, organically-formed windows & portals flowing between living areas & remarkable punched tin kitchen cabinets. Unique touches like stained glass nicho & an adobe-carved serpent motif in each bedroom. Includes two skylights for optimum light, & generous-sized kitchen & dining room to stretch out. High-walled front & back private courtyards encircle the lush, fully-landscaped property with distinct custom steel entry gates. Near Explora, ABQ Museum & Tiguex Park, with four Little Free Libraries within a four block walk.
